Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,200 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family in the hands-on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Patty Bogle became involved in the early years of the vineyards with her late husband Chris, when they planted fields together in the early 1970's. Patty took over operation of the winery in 1989 and has directed production to new and exciting heights. Patty's daughter Jody also contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, as well as running the wine club and handling all international sales. Patty's son Warren, named after the founder of Bogle Vineyards, is the sixth generation of the Bogle family to farm this fertile Delta region. Like his grandfather and father, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This tradition of respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines. The production of Bogle wine is influenced by this family tradition as well as the ever-changing trends in the wine industry. Since 1992, Bogle Winery has participated in the California Appellation Program. In this program, winemakers source fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state and blend them with Bogle's Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg, thus assuring that the wines benefit from many of the incredible grape growing regions of California. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. With their deep commitment to quality, the Bogle family wouldn't have it any other way. Read less

Berry and earthy/leathery flavors on the nose. On the palate, sour cherry and tannins up front, followed by creaminess and a hint of vanilla. Goes very well with a juicy steak.

This is a great value wine. Dust, oak, berries, currants and dark fruit launch in the nose. Black cherry, currant and saucy plum flavors open on the palate, with hints of coffee and bitter cocoa, leading to a slightly astringent and fairly short finish. Silky tannins support a smooth coating and fruity center, with an undertone of raisins and prunes in the middle. Smoke lingers in the background, as white pepper and assorted spices build during the finish and the zing increases with multiple consecutive sips. More complexity than most $10 wines. This is worth including in a wine closet for everyday drinking.

Too many good Cabs out there in this price range. I was very disappointed. Perhaps my expectations were too high, as I have heard a lot of positive buzz about Bogle vineyards. This is not a wine for the cellar and should be ready to drink & enjoy now. It's just not. In review; I thought it was just me but I feel slightly vindicated in my tasting abilities as winelibrary.com also thought this wine was disappointing. Bogle has a great reputation, and I like and will continue to try their other wines. But this will not find a place on my table.

A little rustic and sharp, but perfectly okay if you're looking for an everyday Cab to elevate simple fare. It shows black currant and oak flavors, and is thoroughly dry.

Ripe, bright cherry flavors open up with a hint of eucalyptus nestled in the fruit. Fourteen months in American barrels produces a well-integrated profile of spicy oak and rich tobacco.

Made from Delta and Sonoma grapes, this is a fine Cab if you're looking for something relatively plush at an everyday price. It's soft, with melted chocolate and intense blackberry pie flavors, with a nice edge of spice.

This is rustic and chunky in a good way, offering meaty currant, cedary oak and dried currant fruit that's ripe and chewy. Drink now.

Here's a stellar example of how a really good Cabernet can be made without gouging the consumer. This is a dry, elegant and rich wine, with firm tannins housing flavors of blackberries, currants, herbs, spices and smoky cedar wood. It's a terrific value. 100,000 cases made.

Ripe, black cherry fruit brightens the palate, while the plump body rounds out the experience. Unaggressive tannins compliment a finish of sweet oak, cinnamon and pipe tobacco. Enjoy with a myriad of wonderful foods and friends.

Shows good richness and a nice range of flavors, with roasted herb, sage, dried currant and mineral notes. Full-bodied and rustic, but serves up a tasty mix of unbridled Cabernet. Best from 2011 through 2016.
